    “This location is brilliant for accessing the north yorkshire coast, really lovely hosts and the chickens, goats and horses made it a wee bit special.”

    My wife and I with our little dog Millie will definately be back. It was just the perfect place to be during these horrible times due to Covid.

Hartswood Farm Cottages

Malton 8 miles. Situated near the small hamlet of East Knapton, surrounded by open, working countryside, these four properties, including two lovely apartments, a ground-floor open plan barn conversion, and a delightful wing of a former farmstead are set within the owner’s large property and grounds. Ideally located, these Malton cottages are close to many attractions in the area, including stately homes, gardens and the seaside towns of Filey and Scarborough. Both of the apartments provide inviting first-floor accommodation, with bright and comfortable sitting rooms and modern bathrooms and kitchens, whilst the former farmstead cottage boasts period features, such as beamed ceilings, parquet floors, original fireplaces and a woodburning stove. The ground-floor open-plan cowshed is a lovely romantic retreat, with all you need in one place beneath delightful exposed beams, with views of the ponies and goats in the fields to wake up to. Tastefully furnished and decorated, these four properties near Malton have shared access to a fabulous heated indoor swimming pool with a Jacuzzi, changing rooms and comfortable seating. Outside the two apartments each enjoy their own private patio, the cowshed has a lovely fenced seating area, whilst all four holiday homes have access to communal lawns, with rural views towards Dalby Forest and the Vale of Pickering. The pretty market town of Malton offers a cobbled market square, independent shops and an array of tea rooms and pubs, whilst nearby Pickering has a castle, museums and is the terminus of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway; well worth a nostalgic trip through spectacular moorland scenery. For the more energetic, Dalby Forest offers biking and walking trails, with its Go Ape activity centre and bike hire. Why not enjoy a visit to nearby Scampston House and its beautiful gardens, or have a fun-filled day at Flamingo Land theme park? With something for everyone in this beautiful area, these three holiday homes near Malton will appeal to all the family.

The market town of Malton has been the historic centre of Ryedale since Roman times, and has many interesting buildings including the old Corn Exchange and Assembly Rooms. A weekly general market is still held in the town, as well as livestock and farmers’ markets. The Yorkshire Moors are to the north, and the Yorkshire Wolds are to the south, making it excellent countryside for walkers and cyclists. The impressive coastline is just 24 miles away, whilst the historic city of York is an 18 mile journey. A perfect base for touring the attractions of North Yorkshire.
